Every day, new challenges are added on moolta by daredevils looking to raise money for their favorite causes. While we hope for the best for every single one, every now and then a challenge fails to be completed. Obviously we want every challenge to succeed, but on occasion, a hilarious fail is born providing laughs to all of those who see it. So, today we would like to offer you the very best in FAILS. The art of a fail is truly hysterical and we hope it puts a smile on your face.
Moolta and others bring gaming to charitable giving
Finally, it’s fun to give. In the past, supporting your favorite charity meant volunteering your money, services or other resources. Today, you can do some of your favorite activities to support cause you like.
As you know, moolta allows you to raise money for charity while pushing your limits of challenges and fun. From eating challenges to athletic challenges, and everything in between, the crazier you get the more money you can raise for charity! Others have found entertaining ways to support their causes through entertainment as well.
Free Rice 2.0
Freerice.com is perfect for those who enjoy testing their wits with a good game of trivia. The object of the game is to answer as many questions as you can. For each question that you answer, 10 grains of rice are donated to hungry people for free. You can answer as many questions as you want as well so there is no limit to how much you can give. Free Rice even lets you pick what subject matter you want including Humanities, English, Math, Chemistry, Language Learning, Geography, Sciences and even SAT Test Preparation. You can come to donate or you can come to learn, but whether you like it or not you’re going to leave having done both. The website even has a leaderboard to track who has donated the most rice, and currently the leading contributor has 61,290,000 grains of rice donated.
Game developer, Zynga, raised $1.5 million for Haiti relief efforts following the devastating earthquake. Through their popular games, Farmville and Mafia Wars, they sold special, limited time products that benefited their charitable efforts. Game users worldwide were able to conduct their normal gaming procedures while being able to lend a helping hand to those in need in Haiti.
Other websites do not directly raise money for charities, but still manage to include gaming in raising awareness for good causes.
Al Gore continues his efforts to raise awareness for global warming through this new online gamification effort. Reality Drop provides you the tools you need to “reveal the denial and deception around climate change, spread the truth, and clear the way toward real solutions.” The website not only provides you info to share with others about global warming, but it tracks how many times and what information you share.
Gaming has played a huge impact on our lives and now it’s time to make sure it has an impact on other peoples lives as well. Get started today, entertain yourself to support a charity. Get on moolta and start a challenge, raise money for something you care about. Get out there and make a difference while having fun!
Give a homeless man on the street corner or take them out to lunch, congratulations, you’re a philanthropist. Eating finger-food with toes, congratulations, you’re bizarre. If you hold a public “Eating finger-food with your feet” contest where the box office profit goes towards feeding homeless people, you’re a little bit odd. Continue reading
These are some of our favorite “WTF!?” moments from Ultra Music Festival in Miami that weren’t challenges but DEFINITELY should have been
The “Crowd-surfing Bubble Boy” Challenge
DJ Diplo ignited the audience when he entered a plastic ball and rolled around on top of the audience
Fraternities and Sororities around the country take part in charitable philanthropies
Everybody knows the common fraternity stereotypes… lots of drinking, lots of partying, and lots of tools. While we can’t disagree with any of these and fraternity brothers probably wouldn’t either, we should all agree that members of fraternities and sororities Continue reading
Everybody has a little bit of challenge in them. If you don’t think that you do, then you just don’t know it yet. It’s human nature to push yourself to do challenging things. If you haven’t found anything that stirs your interest, then we are here to help you come up with some awesome challenge ideas!
Every day, we read tons of feedback from our fans and a common theme seems to be that they can’t think of interesting things to do. This happens for several reasons, one being the location of the moolta user.
Jane from Iowa writes to us:
“I see all of these awesome challenges on moolta, like the dress like a chicken and get on stage at a concert challenge, and I want to do things like this but I’m from a small farm town and we don’t have those kinds of things here! HELP ME COME UP WITH CHALLENGES TO DO!!!”
Well Jane, we appreciate your spirit and willingness to do challenges and here is the main piece of advice we have to offer for you in your current situation:
- Take advantage of your surroundings! You’re from a farm town; so do farm related challenges. If you have horses, try jousting your friends with water balloons instead of swords. If you have cows, try drinking straight from their utters. If you have pigs, try eating their food with them (with no hands of course). You see Jane, there are challenges everywhere, you just have to adapt to your surroundings. We are looking forward to your next challenge.
Other users have trouble finding the right range of difficulty for their challenges.
Matt from Florida writes to us:
“As much as I love watching some of the crazier challenges you guys have on moolta, no matter how much money I could make I wouldn’t be insane enough to do them. You guys should give users easier challenges.”
Thanks for the advice Matt! At moolta we don’t believe that you have to be crazy to complete cool challenges… there are challenges of all kinds for any type of person. Try doing the following:
- Check out the idea generator on our create a challenge page (the link is at the top right of our moolta dashboard. The generator is filled with challenges of all difficulty levels. If you still can’t find anything that you like then be creative. If you like music, try playing your favorite song on the piano… using your feet! If you like sports, try to make a bunch of trick basketball shots. Challenges don’t have to be difficult or dangerous, they just have to appeal to a certain audience. Do what you like to do and make it interesting.
The main point is that there is no reason to struggle with challenge ideas. Challenges can be ANYTHING! Easy or hard, dangerous or delightful… As long as you appreciate it, others will too. So go get out there and make challenges! Don’t let anything stop you.
Every now and then we like to take a quick break from our fun and crazy challenges to acknowledge all the other companies out there that are fighting for corporate social goodness alongside moolta. In a world filled with big business, greed and corporate irresponsibility, a few companies stand out and shine amongst the rest as honorable ventures always looking to give back.
As you already know, moolta raises money for charities. We take pride in helping those in need and cherish everything we do for the organizations that benefit from our work. Here is a list of three other companies who also give back and the different ways they go about doing so:
For a company who claims that giving is part of their DNA, TOMS sure lives up to it. TOMS sells shoes, eyewear and apparel, all made from sustainable and vegan materials… even the box is 80% recycled material! But more importantly, for every pair of shoes you buy from TOMS, another pair is donated to somebody in need in poor areas around the world. The company is currently running a giving campaign as well. “Ticket To Give” is a way for TOMS to send 50 people on trips to different parts of the world to give shoes to those who need and chronicle the events. You can even enter to be one of the 50 who take a trip! If you would like to sign up or are interested in learning more, check out the Ticket To Give website here: Ticket To Give
Pepsi launched their “Pepsi Refresh” project as recently as the Super Bowl, but they have managed to make great contributions to society in that time. Pepsi Refresh is a community based around Pepsi where customers can communicate with the brand. Customers can vote on which charity they want Pepsi to support, what contributions they want Pepsi to make to society, and even what fundraising events Pepsi should have. The community is the perfect mix of modern social media, corporate responsibility, and fun! To check out the site for yourself, follow this link: Pepsi Refresh
Wear The Fund
One of our favorite young companies today is Wear The Fund and it’s not because they were also first launched at the University of Florida. Wear The Fund is not only the epitome of corporate responsibility, but the whole brand is based on it. When you purchase a trendy and original article of clothing from Wear The Fund, 20% of your bill goes to one of six charities and the choice is yours! Customers currently get to choose between the Jack & Jill Foundation, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Big Hearts For Big Dogs Rescue, Kiwanis International, The Alzheimer’s Association and Tabarinni. Finally, you can go on that big shopping spree and not feel guilty at the end of it. Check out the Wear The Fund website to learn more about the company and buy your first Wear The Fund shirt!

If we’ve inspired you to give back to charity, make it easy on moolta. Go create a few challenges and raise some money for one of our 12 charities!
The Art of Eating
We’ve truly come a long way since the beginning of the famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. New challenges are added every day on moolta, but recently it has been some of the food challenges that have caught our eyes. Whether you’re eating hot dogs, cinnamon, crackers, wasabi, chugging milk or chowing down on abnormally large burgers, every effort deserves a round of applause. We’ve gathered a few unique challenges that have all taken place on moolta and they’re sure to give you a laugh.
Black Guy Does Mayo Challenge
Many of us are used to saying “hold the mayo,” on food orders. The ridiculously high amounts of calories and fat isn’t a healthy addition to any meal. Forget eating a serving or two on your sandwich though, this guy eats an entire jar!!!
The Ran Over Burger
Anybody can eat a burger, that’s not what made this challenge special. Michael and James Glaze completed their challenge to flatten burgers with the tires of their car and eat them. Everybody hates a “hit-n-run,” but these two make you laugh with their “hit-n-bun.”
15 Shots in 90 seconds
Ok, this one isn’t food, and it actually doesn’t even get completed. But the process of trying to complete the challenge is absolutely hilarious! Phil has to take 15 shots of whiskey in 90 seconds, and without spoiling the ending, I just want to tell you he gets nowhere close!
Eat a Bowl of Grass
Salad is about as far as I will go with vegetables, to be honest, it’s a challenge in itself for me to even eat a full bowl. But Shoenice takes it to another level with this challenge. He somehow manages to eat four square feet of grass in a bowl despite an obvious struggle.
Eat a coworkers doughnut behind his back
This wasn’t an eating challenge, it was an eating prank! And it gets better, this prank took place in our very own moolta office! This is what happens when you’re socializing instead of working… and you leave a delicious doughnut on the table. Sucks to suck, Sagi.
To try your very own eating challenge, go on moolta.com and create a challenge! We’ll be waiting to see your results. The person who completes our favorite eating challenge will not only receive a blog post dedicated to them that will be viewed by our thousands of fans, but the video will be posted on our Facebook page as well!
Best of luck to all of you!
